PAREXEL Global Survey Results Identify Top Concerns of Biopharma Industry in Achieving Commercial Success

BOSTON, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PAREXEL Consulting, a leading global consultancy serving the biopharmaceutical and medical device industries, of PAREXEL International (NASDAQ: PRXL) today announced results of a survey conducted during its recent webinar entitled "Issues Impacting Commercial Decision Making and Patient Access in the Biopharmaceutical Market."  PAREXEL polled biopharmaceutical industry professionals across a broad range of functions including Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR), medical affairs, marketing, reimbursement, and managed markets about the integration of reimbursement strategies in the product development cycle.

The PAREXEL survey results revealed that the majority of respondents (75%) feel that the top concern with being able to achieve commercial success is establishing a product price that is reimbursed and accepted by the market. Other respondents (25%) believe that developing an Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) or Global Value Dossier supporting favorable review by payers is the top commercialization concern.

Approximately 63% of respondents claim their organizations wait until Phase III clinical trials to start involving various internal commercialization personnel, including reimbursement, market access, pricing, and HEOR functions, in supporting a product. Only 37% involve these functions in product support as early as Phase II.

"Our analysis shows that the industry is waiting too long to incorporate reimbursement, patient access, and payment considerations into development. With the industry's top concerns being product price acceptance by the market and favorable payer review, a full complement of commercialization strategies should be analyzed and designed as early as possible in the development process," said Charles A. Stevens, JD, MBA, Vice President and General Manager, Commercialization Strategy, PAREXEL. "More than ever, it is imperative in this market to prove products demonstrate value to patients, providers, and payers. Better reimbursement positioning enables companies to maximize commercial success and support patients in getting access to important products."

With expertise in regulatory affairs, medical affairs, integrated product development, and reimbursement and market access, as well as HEOR, PAREXEL helps biopharmaceutical companies to maximize the value of their products through launch and over the entire product lifecycle.
